Thanks for the couch offer, I greatly appreciate it. As for 90 through Cleveland, it is tempting, especially since I went there a year ago.

CheapBassTurd KMB,

I literally live right offa 20/2 where they skirt under Lake Michigan at the Indiana/
Michigan state line. Gotta couch, plate of food, chain lube, etc. for a freebie (Cheap
always is better) stopover/ nap on the trip.

Made the commute from here to the in-laws in NY on 20 just for the scenery, but
I promise you that 90 is the ONLY way you'll wanna get Cleveland in the rear view
mirror asap. 90 takes 30 min at interstate speed. On 20 the traffic and intersections
would mean an hour or better just to cross town. Definitely some great riding country
you'll be going through.

At speed, the grid seems to disappear, and all you see is the water, some 200 feet below. It gives you the impression that you're flying. Michigan is a pretty state, in the summer. Lots of woods and lakes. The Porcupine Mountains in the U.P. are also something you don't want to miss.
I wanna fly! Thanks for the advice, I'll let you know when it gets closer.

kmbsar Thanks for all the speedy responses.

Farmer, I don't want boring, so maybe 2 it is.

DantesDame, I think US 20 goes into Oregon. Might you be confused with the gorgeous SR-20 to Winthrop?

Culbrz, I'm thinking of taking the Trans America Trail from Oklahoma east. I don't think I want to head that far south on my Boston-Seattle Leg.

Arnie, I really like the idea of crossing the Machinaw bridge! I might go from Cleveland north towards it...but that's an awesome idea.

Thanks all! and keep the suggestions coming!

Arnie Try US 2 east, through Michigan's upper penninsula, then south on I-75 across the Machinaw Bridge, to US23, along the eastern coast of the lower penninsula. US23 then crosses any east/west highways in Ohio.

Culbrz How about the Trans America Trail??? That is what the mule is made to do...
